Dollar, pictured, a 3-year-old neutered male pit bull terrier, was one of the many pets at our shelter who benefited from this grant by receiving a special order of food, treats and enrichment items to help keep him happy and healthy. As you can see by the second photo, he was very pleased with what he received! Dollar has since been adopted into a loving home.

Teddy (first and second photos) was a 1-year-old Lab with LOTS of energy. Going on his Hounds Around Town adventure helped him get out and explore. He was able to go for a short hike and get a bath. He was adopted one month after arriving in the shelter.
